Precise Hopping with Salto-1P
Robot with just one leg jumping and climbing furniture

Follow by Email
Salto-1P is a small monopedal jumping robot capable of continuous high-power hopping. We demonstrate a new control algorithm that can land Salto-1P's foot at particular spots on the ground like jumping on stepping stones or playing one-leg hopscotch. We call this "deadbeat foot placement hopping control". Precise foot placement enables Salto-1P to jump on surfaces like furniture. This work will be presented at the 2018 IEEE/RSJ International Conference on Intelligent Robots and Systems.
